Interesting nugget from Peter King.

NBC Sports’s Peter King put out an article about his thoughts about the draft and what may or may not happen during next weeks draft. One nugget he dropped was about Dwayne Haskins and the Broncos.

In his “10 Things I Think” portion of his Football Morning In America article, he said he wouldn’t be surprised if the Broncos selected Ohio State quarterback at 10th overall.

2. I think I won’t be shocked if Denver, at 10, drafts Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

This is the first real reported connection between Haskins and the Broncos. It really has been about Missouri’s Drew Lock or some of the later round quarterbacks, but now we have Haskins.

This comes days after Haskins took his pre-draft visit with the Broncos where he now famously wore a John Elway jersey for his job interview with, John Elway. This bold move apparently went over well with the Broncos and the visit between the two apparently went well as well. Reports indicate that Haskins made a good impression on the Broncos.

“But Haskins’s boldness seems to have paid off, as multiple sources said Broncos personnel—and, according to a source who was there, Elway himself—saw the humor in it and appreciated the gesture.

As for the actual visit, a source said the quarterback made a good impression and that the Broncos staff noted his presence, intensity and focus.”

There are rumors that Haskins stock is falling so he could be available for the Broncos at 10th overall. If King is on to something here, the Broncos could decide to take Haskins, especially if Drew Lock is off the board. I personally think Drew Lock would be a better schematic fit, but Haskins appears to be the more well-rounded prospect of the two.

Could Haskins bold move of wearing an Elway jersey to his pre-draft visit with the team added with his reportedly sinking draft stock have him fall right into the Broncos laps? It appears that scenario could potentially be in play.
